This quarterly, published 1986, discusses a group of well-educated men who recognized the benefits for those in the community that were derived from education as well as the vitality of introducing people lives to literature. In 1792, the Rutland Social Library was formed particularly for people six miles within proximity. In 1886, the Rutland Free Library was established through to a loan exhibition. This involved people providing historical and interesting articles, and included various orchestras that provided entertainment. This proved to be a great success that helped the library become established.
